Souvlaki GR Continues the Fake Foliage Trend


Picking up where the Lion and the Rabbit in the Moon left off, Souvlaki GR has bedecked the facade of its Stanton Street storefront with ersatz, if pretty, foliage. If you look closely enough at the restaurant, you can almost believe you’re somewhere in the Greek isles — until, of course, someone yells at you to get the hell out of the middle of the sidewalk. It’s slightly disorienting. The new addition of the flowers suggests that the restaurant, which was supposed to open on Monday, will be opening sometime in the near future.
